I bought it a Lowe's or Home Depot... Its the 8 foot vinyl sleeve to go over a 5x5 fence post. Used the top caps on each end and rubber tarp straps bolted to middle of cap and then around front and back. Bolted thru the sides of the sleeve. Never lose the cap that way. Used short pieces of 1/2 inch EMT pipe to space it down to clear the coroplast under trailer.
Just drilled 2 holes each end and corrosponding holes thru frame on outside web. 4 bolts and it's rock solid. Then add the vinyl 4 in eaves trough. Now you can slide it out and use the eaves trough to support the hose. No grit on hose this way.
Nice part is I can store the hose clear elbow and the screw in sewer adapter all in it. Took me a couple hours to complete.
I stole the idea from someone else on a forum.
I have since added a camco black hose carrier to put our extension in. Mounted it next to the vinyl post sleeve. Cost was about the same but the camco is not 8 feet long.
